Tulsa Tough Night 1

There was a twilight criterium just past Hugo tonight.


Anxious moments before me and my closest 104 friends embark on the 8-corner 3/4-mile course. Every corner was pristine and brake-proof.


Old guy in a new skinsuit.


Spaggling.


The race was short and super-fast. Kevin saw 178bpm for the first time since his comeback. I averaged 189bpm for 40 minutes and saw 196bpm with 2 to go. In fact, I'm powering through this blog entry with my hummingbird power, so respect!


There are about 5 bars on the course and 2 jumbo-trons. The crowds were big with a funky combination of the regular Friday night crowd (there was talent and I'm not talking about any cyclists) and the cyclists getting buzzed off 1 plastic cup's worth of light beer. Probably the biggest crowd I've raced in front of in 4 years. Capstick was raging with a full-on bike buzz; I may have caught him tearing up a few times, and the dude hasn't even raced yet.


Isaac is an ass, and his ass is on the jumbo-tron.


Kevin wins the prime that wasn't a prime.

Kevin 17th
Isaac 64th
